Jamie Flick (R-83) today announced $1,092,000 in state funding has been awarded to two projects in Lycoming and Union Counties through Pennsylvania’s Commonwealth Financing Authority (CFA). The awards were considered at today’s CFA Board meeting and approved through the Authority’s Multimodal Transportation Fund (MTF) program.

Yaw said. “I was pleased to work with Rep. Flick and our local officials to help make these projects a reality.”

“It’s gratifying to witness this funding directed towards roadway projects in our community,” Rep. Flick said. “I’m pleased to have worked with Sen. Yaw on this initiative as we continue our focus on helping our municipalities upgrade and improve critical infrastructure that supports our residents and businesses.”

The largest award went to Clinton Township, which received $617,000 for improvements along Pinchtown Road. Additionally, Union County received $475,000 for the replacement of six municipal bridges located in New Berlin Borough and Hartley, Lewis, West Buffalo, and White Deer Townships.

“This grant will help us to complete needed improvements to one of the two most heavily traveled, municipal-owned roads in Clinton Township,” Holly Wertz, Clinton Township Secretary and Treasurer, said. “The Board of Supervisors thank Sen. Yaw and Rep. Flick, the County Commissioners, and the employees who work in those offices for helping to secure this grant.”
